Emerge hosts discussion on digital experience design and real-world tactics — Thursday, September 29th 2016 at 5:30pm
In an always-on world, details matter. Experience design is where they all come together — to create digital, web, and mobile experiences that matter. Details support emotional connection through multiple micro-moments, creating tools that makes life more meaningful, and transforming complexity into simplicity. In the world of user experience, strategy, visual design, and storytelling are the keys to amplifying customer engagement. We’ll explain why, offering tactics that can turn details into indispensable digital experiences.
Date: September 29, 2016; 5:30pm – 7:30pm

DESIGNING FOR DELIGHT
Experience design is a cross-discipline, multi-stage problem-solving process that puts the user first. It’s also a creative approach that’s essential to developing digital interactive systems that are delightful, meaningful, and useful to the people who use them. Here at Emerge, we see experience design as the driver for creating indispensable digital experiences.
